Moved by Music (Updated with ‘My Last Days: Meet #ZachSobiech’)


Zach lost his fight with Osteosarcoma on the 20th of May 2013 at the age of 18. He touched the world with his music and his story; he will remain an inspiration to us all. Our hearts go out to Zach’s family and friends.

The other day Kevin sent me a message about Zach Sobiech as he thought it would be perfect to share with our community. I agreed…

For those of you who don’t know Kevin… he heads the rock band Atomic Honey and shared his personal experience with us as well as being a wonderful support to our community. Kevin also recently shared a lovely tribute for the 5th anniversary of the passing of his dad, Larry Lanier, in conjunction with a special event ‘Maandag’ that he and Barry Burford, musician, DJ and goodwill ambassador to Kenya, kindly shared with us.

Clouds by Zach Sobiech

It’s beautifully inspirational and very moving. Zach’s family are aiming to get as many YouTube views for him as they can as sadly Zach only has a short time left. We’d love you to share it around and show your support.

Zach is 17 but when he was 14 he was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma which is cancer of the bone. His family set up the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund to help with research as there are just under 400 children under that age of 20 diagnosed with it in the US. We’d love you to visit Zach’s Story: Finding Peace Through Music and show your support by sharing it with your friends and followers!

More information about this form of cancer is available at Macmillan Cancer Support.

CLOUDS LYRICS

Well I fell down, down, down Into this dark and lonely hole There was no one there to care about me anymore And I needed a way to climb and grab a hold of the edge You were sitting there holding a rope

And we’ll go up, up, up But I’ll fly a little higher We’ll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer Up here my dear It won’t be long now, it won’t be long now

When I get back on land Well I’ll never get my chance Be ready to live and it’ll be ripped right out of my hands Maybe someday we’ll take a little ride We’ll go up, up, up and everything will be just fine

And we’ll go up, up, up But I’ll fly a little higher We’ll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer Up here my dear

It won’t be long now, it won’t be long now If only I had a little bit more time If only I had a little bit more time with you

We could go up, up, up And take that little ride And sit there holding hands And everything would be just right And maybe someday I’ll see you again We’ll float up in the clouds and we’ll never see the end

And we’ll go up, up, up But I’ll fly a little higher We’ll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer Up here my dear It won’t be long now, it won’t be long now
